In case you haven't already guessed it, or you've read my biography somewhere along the line I'm lso a teacher. I went to India in the late sixties and sat at the feet of Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and taught his technique of meditation to tens of thousands at the time.
It was an exotic experience for me, and the culmination of years of searching and research into the worlds of mythology, the occult, mysticism and magic, as well as religion.
I was a spiritual seeker. Looking to unearth the secrets of Creation and become a better person in the process.
How far I've come on that journey would be hard to measure, as the soul currently has no yard stick to press it to for measurements, but I'd say I've done much more good in my life than bad, and what bad I've done, I've tried to make up for and correct as I grow.
A hard path for any person.
And I recognize the same patterns as a writer as well as a person of spiritual bent.
Writing mus come from deep inside oneself. While I'm no classic writer, I've been influenced by them heavily and it shows in my bent towards Wells and Verne, as well as Conan Doyle and Lewis Carroll.
My own writing ranges from the rather comical to the extreme fantastic, from daydreams to larger realities, and they all make sense in their own way.
I've long ago learned that anything is possible, so I don't close my mind to anything anymore, except that which is deliberately harmful to another being.
My writing follows a similar course, in that I strive to bring out the best parts of me, but put them in rather extreme situations of fantasy and science fiction.
Chesterton K in some ways is an extension of me. He has a sense of humor, he's intelligent and he wants the best for the kids he teaches, as well as the world. My experience is that most teachers wants that, but seldom achieve their goals because of blocks like indifferent school systems, students who have no desire to learn, parents who could care less and sometimes teachers who are so discouraged and dismayed and futile from the overload they face every day that they have given up.
Chesteron K is my version of what I would do if I could slide or side step as he does into a new dimenstion...in this case fractal ones, that are infinitely big and varied.
If I had those kind of powers what would I do? Where would I stop?
And I think I write those ideas because I hope in my own way that I can get someone out there ready to go over the top and commit karmic suicide to think it over and decide is it really worth destroying my life and that of another just to get what I want? Is it really? And when push comes to shove, why would you even begin to think that was a good thing?
Best to all
